The TraumaFX® Canine Medical Trainer (K9 HERO) is a full-body medical trainer for Operational Canine First Responders, Military Working Dog (WMD) handlers, Veterinarians, and veterinary technicians. Designed in partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD), K9 HERO is a state of the art skills trainer for novices and experienced alike. All training sites are realistic to replicate the look, feel, and function of actual medical procedures. The exterior of the simulator has been hand-sculpted to mimic a Belgian Malinois and is covered in durable, non-staining synthetic fur. K9 HERO allows learners to perform critical life-saving tasks such as maintaining an airway, needle decompression/thoracocentesis, hemostasis, IV insertion, Intraosseous (I/O) infusion, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), tracheostomy, and bandaging.
